About Councillor Moloney

Daniel Moloney is a public relations and stakeholder relations professional who was elected to represent the North Ward in October 2016.

Cr Moloney has two decades of high‐level policy experience advising and working with corporate directors, councils, government departments and ministers.

Cr Moloney wants to foster and promote Ballarat’s heritage, tourism, sports and arts sectors.

As one of the thousands of Ballarat residents who regularly commute by train to Melbourne to work Cr Moloney wants to see public transport services continue to improve. One of his focuses as a Councillor is on local and regional jobs growth, so residents who prefer to work locally need not travel out of Ballarat for employment.
